Marseille cruise terminal
Please wait down your ship your guide will meet you there. At the end, you will have choice to stay and spend time in the city then take a free shuttle back to ship or your guide can drop you off your ship just after your tour.
Your morning or afternoon 4-hour tour of France’s oldest city departs from your cruise terminal. Disembark at port and meet your local guide who will help you get acquainted with the deluxe electric bike, a safe and intuitive vehicle. Fit with a small motor and optional baby seats and trailers, this modern ride allows you and your family see more sights in less time.

First, cruise to the Palais du Pharo (Napoleon's Palace), the 18th-century coastal mansion that stands like a sentinel at the entry of the Old Port. Admire the bustling waterway before heading inland to view Notre-Dame de la Garde, a Neo-Byzantine Catholic basilica that rises from Marseille’s highest point, and the Abbey of Saint Victor. Continue through the ambient Le Panier quarter, Marseille’s oldest neighborhood. Coast through picturesque lanes and under terraced houses strung with clotheslines and pass by Marseille Cathedral, a French national monument.

Next head to the Corniche du Président John F Kennedy (Corniche Kennedy) for a leisurely ride along the sun-kissed coastal road. Along the way, pedal past scenes of French life such as locals playing pétanque – a popular bocce-style game – and fishermen working in the village of Vallon des Auffes and the quaint cove Anse de Malmousque. Capture great photos and hear intriguing stories of Marseille’s long history from your savvy guide. You’ll also have a chance to stop for refreshments (own expense) before returning to the port to re-board your ship.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:We will ensure your timely return to the Marseille port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded.

We had a private bike tour for a few wonderful hours.... all over Marseilles ! It was perfect in every way . Isabel was an amazing tour guide who showed so many highlights of the city , including breathtaking views. She was sooo patient with our questions, and our sometimes having to stop our bikes for various reasons. We felt like we were with a good friend all day with her. Cannot recommend the company and the tour enough !!! 5 star !

Thank you so much for your fantastic review. Isabelle will be so happy to hear you felt like you were best friends at the end of the day. It is the best compliment you could give her.

The bike ride was incredible to see the town and its beauty on a bike versus a bus or walking. We were able to experience the culture and sights within a four time frame. Our guide was pleasant and was able to modify the tour to our needs. I highly recommend this tour. The electric bicycle make the challenging hills possible for any age and physical condition.

This was one of the highlights of our week. I don't know the exact name of our guide - I think Kimre - she was absolutely wonderful. We loved learning about the passion she has for Marseille. She was great explaining things to us as well as our 17 and 18 year old boys. I would absolutely do this type of a tour again in any other city. We really loved seeing this city on bike as well as stopping for a few local bites to eat. Excellent job!

This was the highlight of my 10 days trip to Europe this year. Our tour guide Emmanuel Manu from E Bike was super and funny. The ride was excellent and the electric bike was so helpful and fun. Marseille is so beautiful and the best seafood that I ever ate. I will definitely come back and stay longer and will take a full day tour to Calanques on electric bike. Make sure to stop by Cafe Des Arts for coffee, my best cafe au lait so far.

We absolutely loved this tour! We did this tour in the middle of a seven day cruise. The tour company was right on time and picked us up right from the ship! There were several other groups from our ship that also took the same tour but we were broken up by group so it was pretty much like having a private tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and super friendly. The tour was SO MUCH FUN and a welcome break from the regular old fashioned tour where you are in a bus or van all day. The bikes were easy to operate and super fun. I would definitely recommend taking this tour if you find yourself in Marseille!

The highlight of our month long European trip! Cindy met us at the ship, drive us to where the bikes are and got us set up. Then, we toured the city while she gave us a history lesson and took us to secret beaches and landmarks. I couldn't stop smiling the whole ride and we all thought it was the best excursion we had been on family with a 18,16 snd 13 yr old

The Ebike company and Tour sites are great, but be advised if you are not accustomed to ride bikes in traffic. Over 70 of the tour you drive your bike in actual traffic, which could be stressfull if you are not accustomed to it.

One of my favorite tours and a great way to see the sites, but also the back roads of the city. These electric bikes are so much fun - you can go virtually anywhere. Our guide took us to some beautiful scenic locations as well as up the hill to Notre Dame. We arranged a private tour so it would be just our small group which made it even more fun. One of the bike chains broke during the tour but was quickly fixed. A wonderful tour - would highly recommend.

This was such an exhilarating tour!!! Our tour guide, Manuel, was the best!!! He was patient, knowledgeable, humorous and professional. He took great care for our safety. The electric assisted bikes were so much fun to travel around the city on. Stopped at a cafe on a cliff overlooking the sea with delicious food and incredible views. This is a must do tour. Manuel's love for his city and history was contagious.

We cannot say enough about this tour. We were met at the cruise ship and driven to the location of the bikes. We had a lovely women, Mia escort us on the tour. The area is very hilly and I am not sure we could have done it on regular bikes. The electric bikes gave us the push when needed. She took us to small areas that we would not have seen on a big tour. The private tour is definitely the way to go!

This was a fun and healthy way to see Marseille. We were able to ride to the top of the hill on the electric assisted bikes without any difficulty. We saw parts of the city that would not have been possible by car or bus.
